Talking Points:

  • EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 136.22-27, 135.85, 135.18
  • Resistance:137.62, 138.80, 139.75

The Euro turned higher against the Japanese Yen as expected after showing positive RSI divergence on a test of February’s swing bottom. A daily close above the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 137.62 exposes the intersection of the 38.2% level and a falling channel top at 138.80. Alternatively, a turn below support in the 136.22-27 area, marked by the February 4 low and the 23.6% Fib expansion, opens the door for a challenge of the channel floor at 135.81.

The ECB looks to be the most dovish of the leading central banks, putting the Euro at a disadvantage against its major counterparts. With that in mind, we will opt not to pursue a long position and wait for the bounce to produce a selling opportunity.
